How to have eternal life


From A Distance

From A Distance
..... Bette Midler .....
(Written by Julie Gold)


From a distance, the world looks blue and green,
and the snow capped mountains white.
From a distance, the ocean meets the stream,
and the eagle takes to flight.
*From a distance, there is harmony,
and the echo through the land.
It's the voice of hope, it's the voice of peace,
it's the voice of every man.
From a distance, we all have enough, and no one is in need.
And there are no guns, no bombs and no diseases,
no hungry mouths to feed.
From a distance, we are instruments, matching in a common band,
playing songs of hope, playing songs of peace,
there is the song of every man.
God is watching us, God is watching us, God is watching us,
from a distance, ohh God is watching us
....... from a distance.

Whooooa there. From a distance? If God is watching you from a
distance my friend, something is very wrong. Let's look at the
relationship God wants with us.

Galatians 4

6 And because ye are sons, God hath sent forth the Spirit of his
Son into your hearts, crying, Abba, Father.
7 Wherefore thou art no more a servant, but a son; and if a son,
then an heir of God through Christ.

Romans 8

15 For ye have not received the spirit of bondage again to fear;
but ye have received the Spirit of adoption, whereby we cry, Abba,
Father.
16 The Spirit itself beareth witness with our spirit, that we are
the children of God:

Abba can be translated into the term DADDY. God does not want to be
distant from us, He wants to be as close as we "let Him be"

God is so interested in each of us that HE has the very hairs on our
head numbered.

Luke 12
6 Are not five sparrows sold for two farthings, and not one of them
is forgotten before God?
7 But even the very hairs of your head are all numbered. Fear not
therefore: ye are of more value than many sparrows.

Ummm Is there anyone reading this that cares that much for anyone
including themselves that they have numbered the hairs on someones
head?

Yet God IS watching many, if not most from a distance. WHY? Because
they do not want Him near them. You see my friend, God has given all
of us FREE WILL. He allows us to chose to do good, or to do evil.
Often this free will will involve those that are innocent. Some
chose to do evil to others without their consent. Yes it is very
hard to understand this aspect of free will, yet we know also that
God does care about those who are abused. The Word of God indicates
that Jesus has suffered all the things we suffer. We have seen
different messages showing that JESUS is right there with a child
that is abused. Messages such as "The smell of Rain" We also know
many who have overcome the effects of abuse and are using it to help
others that have not healed from abuse as of this time.

Apart from free will, why does God allow it? Does He really
watch "from a distance" and not care about us?

Well, the same wind that will knock over mighty trees, will only bend
other trees. Bad things happening to good people can do one of two
things. Just like a tree in a dry times. It can either weither and
die, or it can send it's roots deep. When it sends its roots deep,
it can withstand the storms of life.

Thus, the storms of life can drive us away from God if we think he is
like this song says, distant, or it can drive us TO God if we ask Him
to be close. God will not force Himself on any one. WE have to ask
Him to come into our life.

Revelation 3
20 Behold, I stand at the door, and knock: if any man hear my
voice, and open the door, I will come in to him, and will sup with
him, and he with me.

We have to hear His voice and then open the door. He will not force
His way in. My friend, are you listening for that voice? No He will
not yell and shout..OPEN THE DOOR....He knocks gently, and whispers
I love You....I love You... because that is what Calvary says.

I LOVE YOU...I love YOU...I love you...written in RED.

God is watching us...... from a distance.

My friend, are you tired of this distance? Do you long for a
personal relationship with the creator of the universe, a
relationship where you can cry out "Daddy, I need you" when you are
hurting?

You can have it in the next few moments my friend. Jesus is waiting
to hear YOUR cry:

How to have Eternal LIFE!
